IEC 62841-2-11 Testing

Electric motor-operated hand-held tools, transportable tools and lawn and garden machinery – Safety – Part 2-11: hand-held reciprocating saws

IEC 62841-2-11 Abstract:

IEC 62841 2 11 and EN 62841 2 11 applies to reciprocating saws such as jig saws and sabre saws. The rated voltage is not more than 250 V for single-phase A.C. or D.C. tools, and 480 V for three-phase A.C. tools. The rated input is not more than 3 700 W.

IEC 62841-2-11 compliance testing deals with the hazards presented by tools, which are encountered by all persons in the normal use, and reasonably foreseeable misuse of the tools. Hand-held electric tools, which can be mounted on a support or working stand for use as fixed tools without any alteration of the tool itself, are within the scope of this standard and such combination of a hand-held tool and a support is considered to be a transportable tool and thus covered.
